I’m a big fan of masks. The little extra time for myself (because, obviously, I don’t want anyone else to see me with the mask on. I want to be alone) can be a big thing. The 10 or 15 minutes to pamper myself can make a big difference in my day!
An oatmeal mask…. doesn’t sound super impressive, does it? Should masks been peeling and full of clay? Something that removes the outer layer of skin to smooth things out and refresh? Does that even sound like a good idea?
An Oatmeal mask really is for soothing out any rough and irritated spots, and bringing down any inflammation. But, I have to tell you, I really feel like this mask also adds a huge amount of moisture to my skin. It makes my skin plump and dewy and just… glowy. When you apply it, it is grainy and you can feel a lot of the oatmeal in it. It feels a bit like a combination between lotion and a ground up oatmeal cookie. It also smells like it. Which makes me want to lick it off of my face. . .
